A Review on Influence of Rotor Geometry on the Performance of Single-Phase Capacitor- Run Induction Motor
Single-Phase induction motor is a major requirement for domestic applications as well as for industrial and commercial sectors. The popularity of SPIM is growing day by day due to its ruggedness, simplicity, inexpensiveness, low noise, ease of operation and reliability in size. To enhance the efficiency and torque of SPIM a lot of approaches have been proposed in past. The rotor geometry has an evident inspiration on the performance of singlephase induction motor. The rotor parameters play a crucial role in expansion of efficiency and torque developed by the motor. Researchers in the past have scrutinized the effects of rotor parameters on the performance of machine taking few parameters at a time to avoid complication of objective functions. The gap in the investigation & analysis of accumulative effect of all the rotor design parameters on the optimization has been shorted out by the advancement in the software techniques i.e. FEMM (Finite element method in magnetic), Maxwell etc. in which large number of parameters can be taken at a time in the simulation work. This paper presents the investigations & analysis of rotor geometry on the performance improvement in SPIM.
